If I remember correctly, you should be able to use a thin screwdriver to pry them out a 1/4" or so. Then use a pair of needle nose to depress the tabs & pop it out.

You can usually reuse them 3-4 times before they break, however they can break on the first romoval.

Yeah it can be a little tough if there is dirt in the clips. Just take your time with a flat screwdriver as the above poster said.

There is a very small "gap" in the circumference of the top flat part of the rivet.
Look for it and use a small flat head to pry it up at the gap while using fingernails on the other side to help.
